Re: FIAT hubcaps

These HubCaps are built so poorly. The only thing holding the RF one in when driving on the freeway is when my mom curbed it so hard one quarter is bent into the rim.

I tried looking. They’re about $90-$250 a piece. My mom bought a replacement 2 years ago on amazon, but they’re gone. The stock hubcaps lack a retaining ring, is there one with a retaining ring.

Re: FIAT hubcaps

At those prices, you may as well just buy some alloys ...

Re: FIAT hubcaps

Did the EU cars ever come with 15" steel wheels ?

Maybe see how much replacements are at your fiat dealership. Sometimes if something it hard to find eBay and after market prices can be more than if you just buy it at the dealership parts counter.

Nope. We had 15” steel wheels here as well, they had a different design for the wheel covers though.
